Inventory item description not available for multiple units of measurement

1 case of raspberry contains 12 pints and each pint has 6 oz weight.

If I sell the raspberry by the Case, then I want the item description to be as follows:

 

Qty       U/M       Item     

1           Case      Raspberry 12x6 oz

 

If I sell it by the each, then I want the item description to be as follows:

 

Qty     U/M         Item

1         Each        Raspberry 6 oz

 

If I set the sales description as "Raspberry 12x6 oz" then when someone purchases an Each of raspberry the item description is going to have the Case description.

 

Qty    U/M       Item

1        Each      Raspberry 12x6 oz

 

How do I fix this problem?

Re: Inventory item description not available for multiple units of measurement

Hello there, @Einstein.

 

As of this time, QuickBooks doesn't have an integrated way to enter two descriptions to specify the Each and Case U/M transaction.

 

But I've got a workaround that you may consider. When entering the transaction, you can manually edit the description and change it to "Raspberry 6 oz" if someone purchases an each of raspberry.

 

I want to let you know that we're taking note of your feedback and suggestions to improve the experience we're providing.

 

You might also want to read this article to learn more about the multiple units of measures: Use Single and Multiple Units of Measure for Items.

Re: Inventory item description not available for multiple units of measurement

Thanks for the info, I was expecting an automated way to do it; we process over 300 produce items per day every day and manually changing the item description is not efficient.

 

I read the U/M article but I don't think it is what we need.

 

Thank you.

Re: Inventory item description not available for multiple units of measurement

I've read your original post, Einstein.

 

Let me provide further details about the Unit of Measure (U/M) in QuickBooks Desktop.

 

In your case, you have the option to create a U/M by Count and select Each as the base. The option to automate the item's description from Raspberry 12x6 oz to Raspberry 6 oz when someone purchases each of the raspberries hasn't been made available.

 

I appreciate your thoughts on this. Please know that we are working to continuously improve the product's features to suit your needs. If I hear any changes about the option that you're looking for, I'll be sure to update this thread.

 

For any updates and feature enhancements, I suggest checking our website through this link: Firm of the Future.

 

This should point you in the right direction. Leave a comment below if you have further questions. I'll get them answered for you.
